Table 2 Anti-HIV-1 activity of hybrid coating on glass coverslips

From: Protective hybrid coating containing silver, copper and zinc cations effective against human immunodeficiency virus and other enveloped viruses

  Exposure time [min] HIV-1 titer [TCID50/ml] after exposure to uncoated and coated coverslip and after washing with 0.49 ml of PBS HIV-1 titer reductiona p-valueb

  1. aHIV-1 titer reduction was calculated from average HIV-1 titers from uncoated coverslips set as 100 % minus the quotient between residual average HIV-1 titers from coated coverslips and average titers from uncoated coverslips expressed in percentage
  2. bOne way analysis of variance test between HIV-1 titers obtained from uncoated coverslips versus coated coverslips at given exposure time
